    Default Could anybody identify these 2 aircraft Dials

    I bought these recently at a local antique shop, it was in a box among loads of other industrial dials an gages. And I stumbled upon these two. My thoughts are that at least the first one is from the RAF as it has the Air ministry symbol on it, and i suppose mit's from a pre WW2 aircraft as its dated 1938, the second I was told was from a First World War aircraft, but I doubt it But It does look quite old. This is not my area at all (if I ever had an area) so if anybody has any suggestions at all they would be greatly appreciated.

    First Gage (with the white face) has the following things written on it

    Front-
    D.C. Amperes
    Ref N5A/1630
    Howard Buttlers Ltd Walsall
    NAD2232
    Back-
    I can make out B H W F

    And the second (with the black face)

    Front-
    CARB
    C
    Mk1A
    Elect

    One is an ammeter to measure the current in the electrical system of the aircraft, and the other is a carburetor temperature gauge. Both look like they could come from ww2 period aircraft. Certainly a propeller driven aircraft in the case of the carb guage.

    As for the ammeter the company who built it still exists Home Howard Butler LTD, it might be worth contacting them for info!...
